Darts on TV 400

Postby SarahMiller42 » Thu Aug 02, 2012 12:04 am

So I'm small busted and when I fit the TV400 I only really have room for one dart. Does this dramatically alter the look of the bodice? Do I really need two?

I would do everything you can to get the 2 darts. If the darts are only 1/16" wide, I would still put in two. The darts give a visual effect of a smaller waist. Leaving them out kinda advertises that your waist was too thick to put them in.

If you do decide to only put in one dart, try to angle it towards the center front at the waist, rather than just straight down. The more angle, the more the visual effect of smaller waist.
